Manchester United legend Gary Neville has given his take on Twitter on Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa sending a spy to watch Derby County in training this week.

Leeds head coach Bielsa has admitted to Sky Sports that he sent someone to spy on Derby’s training ahead of the Championship game between the two sides at Elland Road on Friday evening.

Former United and England international defender Neville has given his take on what happened, and has said that he admires Bielsa for stating that he did it.

It will be interesting to see if there is any punishment for Leeds regarding the spying incident.

What cannot be disputed if that the Whites were the better team against Derby and deservedly picked up all three points from the Championship game.

The win against the Rams saw Leeds put an end to their three-game losing run and get back on track for automatic promotion to the Premier League.

This is the season when Leeds could end their long wait for playing in the top flight of English football again.
